It has become commonly accepted knowledge amongst leftists that the coronavirus disproportionately affects African-Americans and people of color (POC). Somehow. Someway. Everything does. Everything must. If they are to keep and enhance their power and virtue-signaling glory. Listening to leftists attempt to explain this phenomenon involves extreme mental gymnastics on the part of both the explicator and the listener. As well as the setting aside of anything resembling reason or sanity. But this is no impediment to the woke-drunk, praise-seeking progressive. Perish the thought. They will tell you that people of color tend to be employed more frequently in “essential” jobs, like those, apparently, in the National Basketball Association, the National Football League and the rap music industry. They will also inform you that a higher percentage of POCs live in large urban areas as compared to pale people, making them more likely to come in contact with the disease. I know this isn’t always the case, as evidenced by Manhattan, Hollywood, and the vast suburbs of Washington, D.C., to say nothing of Portland, Seattle, Madison, Wisconsin, and other big cities.
No matter the topic or crisis, our progressive friends will purport that it affects “marginalized communities” to a far greater extent than straight, white, Christian folks. This is odd, since, in many if not most areas of the country, straight, white Christians are the minority. In fact, the most marginalized—in some cases persecuted—minority around. Progs will have none of this, however, and will immediately return to bleating about how the latest polar vortex (this one in May) is caused by global warming…which is itself caused by mankind, in particular straight, white, male, capitalist businessmen/robber barons intent on destroying the planet. And, oh yeah, it disproportionately affects POC and the LGBTQ community.
Wasps Asian “Murder Hornets” that have
recently landed in Washington state, hard on the heels of the
coronavirus, will, I’m sure, magically target peoples of color and the LGBTQ
community while terrorizing the fruited plain, heading west to east with all
due haste. CNN and MSNBC will report on the devastation being visited upon the
marginalized by these insects, while, of course, renaming them “Fascist Murder
Hornets” or some such appalling appellation. And now we hear of an Asian Gypsy
Moth infestation. These, too, have come ashore in the Evergreen State, a
designation that may have to be changed if the moths utterly denude the place
as some experts predict. That the devastation will be substantially greater for
those in the LGBTQ community and for peoples of color it should go without
